Webinar: Best Practices and Tools That the Build the Capacity of Adult Protective Services to Serve Immigrant Domestic and Sexual Violence Victims

Date: Thursday, January 30, 2020
Time: 1:00 PM – 2:30 pm Central

Description: Adult Protective Services (APS) agencies across the country encounter immigrant and limited English proficient victims of abuse in later life. Congress created immigration protections for immigrant victims of domestic violence, spousal abuse, elder abuse, sexual assault, stalking, human trafficking, and other crimes. When APS staff identify eligible victims and connect them with programs that can assist elderly victims in applying for these forms of immigration relief, the types of help APS can offer immigrant victims greatly expands.

This webinar will provide an overview of immigrant seniors’ and disabled adults’ legal rights to access immigration relief, U and T visa certification, family law protections, victim, legal and social services, and which forms of publically-funded benefits and services immigrant victims of abuse in later life qualify for in your state. Participants can access U visa certification toolkits, screening tools, free legal technical assistance, and a library of materials to help APS Administrators ensure that immigrant victims whom their agencies are assisting receive all the help that they are legally eligible to receive.
